Smart Car cleverly fits 11 Smart load: Some of the Kawakawa children who packed into Raymond, the Kiwibank Smart Car last week. Guess how many kids can fit into a little Smart car. Judging by the squashy fun some Kawakawa Oscar pro- gramme kids had on Thursday, the answer is 11.The occasion was the arrival outside Kawakawa Post Shop of Raymond, the little Kiwibank Smart Car. Thomasina Edwards, manager of the Post Shop, had organised an in store competition to celebrate Raymond's visit by asking customers to guess how many kids could fit into the car. We managed to comfortably fit 11 into the car. While none guessed the exact num- ber, there were three who guessed 10 or 12 so I decided to give them consolation prizes any- way,'' Ms Edwards says. They were Amy Bray, Nicky Witana and a young girl called Kathleen. Kiwibank is also running a promotion for anyone who switches their bank account to Kiwibank. They'll go into the draw to win a black Raymond.'' Kiwibank ladies Kerry McLees and Rebecca Martin, who were instru- mental in getting Ray- mond to visit Kawakawa, also helped out by giving out jelly beans and stickers to children. Overall, I think it was a very successful visit, with lots of fun had by all,'' Ms Edwards says. Blind appeal goes online Doggone it: Guide dog puppy Fudge about to set up her MyBucket online collection for Blind Week. The Royal New Zea- land Foundation of the Blind has launched a new online collection tool for its Blind Week appeal, October 25-31, making it the first charity in New Zea- land to do so. In an ever increas- ing digital world, the The foundation understands the need to communicate with its wide supporter base through inter- active online channels. The virtual bucket collection tool, named by the foundation as MyBucket'' and created by New Zea- land company Givealittle, uses the unique potential of digital technology and social media to enable supporters to shake a bucket'' in the online space. Previous street appeal collectors Mike Hosking and Kate Hawkesby will be taking part in the online collection, as is Jax Hamilton, Masterchef finalist and the face of the foundation's Bake a Difference for Blind Week event. We're really excited to be launching MyBucket for this year's Blind Week appeal,'' foundation chief executive Sandra Budd says We all know that people are communi- cating more and more online. It's also an extremely cost effec- tive way for us to raise essential funds and awareness of our cause,'' Ms Budd says. The MyBucket online collection will be live for just three weeks from now until November 5 and the foundation is encour- aging registrations via http://mybucket.rnzfb .org.nz/. It only takes a few easy steps to sign up as collector, or to donate via a secure payment process, with 100 percent of donations going to the foundation.
